This article explains how to manage videos on an Amara team.

Before adding a video to a team
Only add videos that you own or have obtained permission to share. Review Amara’s Terms of Service for more information
Public videos are easiest for allowing Amara users to view and subtitle. Learn more about video permissions in our integration articles:
Important: Amara does not host videos
We only import video information
Video must be embeddable and public to view on Amara
Check host site settings, whitelist if necessary
If a video is private, users will not be able to view it
If a video is password protected, users must enter the password to view
Who can add videos to your team?
The team’s settings determine who can add videos to your team. Administrators and owners can always add videos, and managers can be allowed based on settings. Team admins and owners can go to Team Settings > Permissions to view and change the team’s settings.
Note: Contributors currently cannot be given permission to add videos. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you want that option for your team!
